THEN: Tempestt Bledsoe as 'Vanessa Huxtable'
The fourth Huxtable child is Vanessa, a nosy pre-teen who often gets into fights with her younger sister Rudy. She goes on to attend Lincoln University and eventually becomes engaged to an older man named Dabnis Brickey. The pair decided not to go through with the wedding, but remained friends. —XFINITY Entertainment Staff (Photo: NBC)
